Is it really October already???

I've been saying this since March, but MAN, time really flies.  I can't believe it's already October.  

Fall is my favorite season of all.  I love the crisp, cool weather, wearing sweaters and boots, RAZORBACK FOOTBALL, cooking and baking without making the house nuclear hot worrying about the house being too warm for Marc, watching the leaves change colors and fall from the trees, Oktoberfest, and getting to see a lot of my friends! 
I think this is the busiest month I have had all year!  There is something going on every weekend and then We go to VEGAS soon also!!! I LOVE Vegas, we always have so much fun!

Since yesterday's high temperature was in the 50's I made one of my favorite meals for dinner.  It's super easy and so, so tasty.  
Oven fried chicken with saffron rice and green beans.  Sometimes the simplest things are the best.
First,  pre heat the oven to 375, then place the chicken in the cast-iron skillet skin side down to season the bottom, then flip each piece over and season the skin side.  

These are my favorite seasonings for Oven fried chicken

bake for an hour to an hour and 5 minutes

The chicken cooks in its own juices, no oil at all needed! HEALTHY! ish

Green beans seasoned with garlic, salt & pepper and some butter

Saffron Rice. Enough said, it's DEEEE-lish!

Dinner; simple and delicious!
We were pretty busy this past weekend.  We both worked Friday & Saturday, then one of my friends got married on Sunday, so we were at his wedding all afternoon. (Congratulations, Eric & Carolyn! All the happiness in the world to you both!)  Monday, we were both off work all day and I slept most of the day because I was hungover to get rid of a headache!  We ended the night with some of the guys Marc used to work with watching the Yankees game at Miller's Ale House.  It's always so good to see those guys. I laugh until my cheeks hurt. Every. Single. Time.  So much fun.  

So now I have got to get the laundry done and the house vacuumed & dusted because I've got company a-coming and no other time to do all of it.  Hope y'all have a wonderful week and I should have a lot of pictures to post this month!
